Outsourcing to Dubai?
India's a tough place to live. That's the pitch Dubai is using to woo companies to bring outsourcing work to the tiny island nation.
The city-state, part of the United Arab Emirates, has kicked off an effort to land some of the outsourcing work that is heading to countries with low labor costs like India and China. But instead of trying to compete head-to-head against those giants, the country is positioning itself as a place where companies can place their more senior or more qualified employees who may not want to live in Bangalore or Mumbai.
